Mariah Carey To Provide A Song For Oz The Great And Powerful
Coming Soon reports that Mariah Carey has recorded the song “Almost Home” for Sam Raimi’s Oz the Great and Powerful. The film will be released on March 8, 2013.
“Almost Home” will be a single from Carey’s label, Island Def Jam, on February 19. David LaChapelle will direct Carey in the music video for the song. LaChapelle calls the video “a duet between Mariah and the movie.” Carey co-wrote and co-produced the song.
He previously photographed Carey for album covers and directed her music video “Loverboy”. Disney, Carey and Island Def Jam also plan to begin a promotional campaign for the single, the video and the film.
Carey said: “‘Almost Home’ has a message that works beautifully with the film. It’s a feel-good record; it gives you the feeling of reaching your home and being with people that you love.“
